An Economic Update session on the need for legislation for WSDEs?

I'd like to suggest an Economic Update session on the need for legislation to simplify, incentivize, or even allow the formation of WSDEs. Many believe that existing corporate law allows the formation of WSDEs just as easily as forming an LLC or other corporate structure. I'm not so sure considering that half a dozen states have now passed legislation streamlining the process and apparently solving the problem of certain obstacles. WSDE access to bank loans is one of the problems as I understand it as well. Therefore I would very much like to see an Update covering these questions.

    I think this is very important. If anyone is thinking of introducing policies to implement worker coops it must entail the HOW to do it. Yeah, I would be very interested to learn how can we legally implement “collective property”, weather a coop is a person as a corporation, are there conflicts, etc. How does membership change affects legal things and so forth. Very much interested.
